-- Function to get current PAGENAME and related
function export.get_base()

	local NAMESPACE = mw.title.getCurrentTitle().nsText

--       sub_key2 = {value4, value5},

--       sub_key4 = {value7, value8},
--     },
--   }

function export.insert_if_not(tab, item)

-- convert list to set
function export.list_to_set(list)
